When Simplicity Wins

Beauty can be overwhelming at times. This is especially true of skin care. With so many different products to choose from, it can be hard to narrow down exactly what’s right for your own skin type. Plus, when you are using too much on your skin, those fine layers can become confused giving you all sorts of problems to deal with.

Issues that might show up in your skin are aging fine lines, deeper wrinkles, dryness or dehydration, and even sensitivity problems with redness and inflammation thrown in for bad measure. All you want is beautiful skin, right? It’s not too much to ask for, we’re happy to say. Here’s the real deal on skin care: when simplicity wins, your skin will win too. It’s just that simple. Koru Naturals has been bringing simple skin care solutions with natural and organic ingredients to people everywhere since 2002. Here’s a few ways to pare down your skin care routine to more effective products that truly work wonders for your skin.

When Simple Is Best

Paring down your skin care routine is going to be a great first step to start with on the road to better behaving skin. If you have a whole litany of skin care items you use in your routine, it’s time to cut out the ones that aren’t absolutely necessary. You are probably overdoing it if you have over ten skin care items on your vanity shelves.

The goal here is to get your skin to perform better with fewer products. You don’t really need multiple cleansers, exfoliators, and serums all cluttering up your life. Break it down to four items that are actually going to work for your skin. Your skin can only absorb and change so much that when you are overwhelming it with products it’s going to react, and not in the way you want it to. Radiant, youthful skin can be yours when you figure out that simple is best.

Try To Pick Four Products You Need

When looking to simplify your skin care routine, get it down to four products at first. Those four products are a cleanser with makeup remover, a targeted facial oil, a moisturizer, and an eye cream. You want clean skin that is well hydrated and protected, especially if you have to heal some damage in your skin from over-exfoliation or too harsh chemicals in all of your products. Stress on your skin can be reversed if you can commit to subjecting it to less skin care trauma, which means getting rid of unnecessary products.

The Beauty Of Pure Oils

When talking about facial oils, it’s important to choose ones that will have the active ingredients you need to pamper and hydrate your skin. Two perfect ones to look at are

Rose Hip Seed Oil and Pure Olive Squalane Oil. Each has very unique skin care benefits that will help your skin.

Rose Hip Seed Oil is pure and cold pressed to help heal that top layer of dehydrated skin. This “extra virgin” oil from NZ Fusion Botanicals is extracted using a single simple press to get out all that natural oil from the seeds of the wild rose bush. A gorgeous oil which when patted on gently morning and night will give you the smooth, soft skin you crave. Vitamin E, which is found in naturally high amounts in the rosehip seeds, is going to help minimize the appearance of wrinkles, fade old acne or eczema marks, and even helps with sun damage and sensitive skin.

Pure Olive Squalane is another winning singular oil to try on your face. This type of oil is a natural skin antioxidant because it’s able to lock moisture into the skin, strengthen the skin’s tissue, and even calm irritation. The harvest is straight from olives of the highest quality to get that all important squalane into the bottle. This kind of beneficial oil is suitable for all skin types, but aging skin and even people with psoriasis or rosacea can truly benefit from the moisturizing power of pure Olive Squalane Oil added to their skin care routine.

Above all when you use high quality skin care that is truly targeting your skin’s needs, you won’t have to buy all those excess products. The effective part of skin care comes from having a simple routine that works. Incorporating pure oils along with the right cleansing routine is going to give your skin the simple care it really needs.
